Terror and Treason

The Texas Triangle is formed by three cities. From Houston in the north it extends an hour’s drive east to Beaumont, and a half an hour’s drive south to Galveston. The Gulf of Mexico extends from Beaumont to Galveston, and forms the bottom of the triangle. Predominated by the petrochemicals industry, it is the most target-rich industrial district in America.
My first analysis of it as a terror target, "Don’t Laugh at Duct Tape; It Saves Lives," was published by The Houston Chronicle on 2/23/03. Within half a year federal officials were teaching local law enforcement and first responders its conclusion, which was that Houston, the heart of the Texas Triangle, was the most likely place in the nation for the next 9/11. When I wrote the analysis, I had no doubts about the official 9/11 story, and was trying to reactivate my commission to go fight in the Middle East.
An Alarming Report and a Red Alert
|"Maybe the people who think there’s a conspiracy out there are right."
— Congressman Peter DeFazio, 7/20/07
W. Leon Smith, publisher of the Lone Star Iconoclast, was alarmed when he called me at 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 17. He told me to read an e-mail he had just received from Texas City and forwarded to me in Houston. We were in the middle of a busy week covering TOPOFF, the Oct. 15-19 worldwide nuclear terror exercise. According to our insider source, we should have been paying less attention to the worldwide picture, and more attention to our own backyard of Texas. After I opened and read the e-mail, I became alarmed, too.
It contained a confidential British Petroleum memorandum, issued Oct. 16 and written by company security manager Glenn Starkey, and bore the ominous title "Live" security/terrorism exercise – Thursday October 18. In it Starkey explained that on Oct. 4, two weeks earlier, the FBI, Homeland Security, US Coast Guard and various Texas police agencies had been running a command post terror exercise in Texas City. They were about to come back for a full-scale effort.
"This Thursday October 18, 2007, BP and other clients of the Port of Texas City will participate in a "live" security/terrorism exercise with federal and local agencies in the Port of Texas City," Starkey wrote. "FBI SWAT, Bomb Techs, Texas City Police Department SWAT, Galveston County Sheriff Dept. Marine Units, and DHS-USCG will be participating in this major event." He added that the media would only be told about the exercise just before it was to occur.
Mr. Smith and I talked it over, and agreed that the delay in announcing the exercises meant either that they had been suddenly scheduled, or that the government was keeping them secret. Both of these possibilities were cause for alarm, we agreed. We double checked our source, confirmed it, and by 11 p.m. had issued an urgent worldwide bulletin: RED ALERT TEXAS CITY: "Live" Drill 10/18/07. Before hanging up, we agreed on which lawyer we would use should either of us be arrested overnight.
A Pillar of Fire and a Fearful Pasadena
|"The truth is, Bush just likes to blow things up in Iraq, in the United States and in Congress."
— Congressman Pete Stark, 10/18/07
I woke up early the next morning to discover that three hours after The Iconoclast issued its red alert it had been validated. A Dow Chemical pipeline had blown up at 2 a.m. in Port Arthur, a city in the Texas Triangle just outside Beaumont. Fire was shooting up 100 feet, area trees were igniting like matchsticks and toxic chemicals were spewing into the city air. Residents were sheltering in place, houses shut up and air conditioners shut off to keep themselves from being poisoned. People throughout surrounding Jefferson County could see a pillar of fire, but people in Port Arthur thought it was hell on earth.
Area police were unresponsive when I called them, offering no details when asked about ongoing exercises in Texas City and the explosion in Port Arthur. They referred me to a Homeland Security spokesperson who did not return my call. Thank God for the Internet, since that relentless medium quickly began to dig out details of what had happened. The best discovery was that Port Arthur — only two days before — had been conducting terror exercises like those in Texas City.
"And they blew it up this morning!" one of our Iconoclast intelligence sources wrote us before noon, outraged at the obvious false flag operation. "They have no shame, no efforts to hide their methods!"
In all likelihood the perpetrators of the Port Arthur explosion had set up the terror exercises in Port Arthur and Texas City, and perhaps in other petroleum cities in the Texas Triangle. Once committed to the plan they pretty much had to do something. In this case, it was something relatively minor. The Port Arthur explosion caused no fatalities, but it was industrial sabotage at the least. The guilt was substantial and shared, which meant that none of the plotters could afford to rat the others out. Since greed is always part of a false flag conspiracy, connected insiders could profit from the inevitable flux in the markets: oil reached $90 per barrel by the end of the day, a record high.
There was an even more harrowing event than the Port Arthur explosion still in store for the Texas Triangle, though. At 5 p.m. Texas Highway 225, the Pasadena Freeway, was closed because of a nuclear incident. Local hazardous materials teams and a national Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Team were on the scene, along with a full entourage of various police agencies. Pasadena is notorious throughout the area as "Stinkadena" because of the noxious fumes spilling out of its petrochemical refineries, pipelines and tank farms.
Petrochemical incidents like the one in Port Arthur are occasional facts of life in our part of Texas, but nuclear incidents like the one in Pasadena are unheard-of rarities. By the end of the day official spokespersons and the mainstream media were assuring the Texas Triangle that the petrochemical and nuclear incidents were innocuous, and unrelated. To those of us who knew the story behind the story, though, there remained the damning facts: two sudden terror drills had coincided with two WMD-related events. Without the principled insider’s report to The Iconoclast, followed by our red alert, who can say what might have occurred in the Texas Triangle?
The Texas Triangle: Terror and Treason
|"I am concerned that a contrived Gulf of Tonkin-type incident may occur to gain popular support for an attack on Iran."
— Congressman Ron Paul, 1/11/07
This wasn’t the first time I have been part of an Internet effort to expose a false flag event in the Texas Triangle, it was the sixth. In five of the six cases our predictions were confirmed by explosions. Four of the explosions resulted in world record petroleum prices, and probably lavish rewards for the insiders who had invested in the markets based on advanced knowledge. All six of the events were in the Texas Triangle. We never issued an incorrect prediction: there were six predictions and six events.
A mathematician friend of mine recently calculated that if we assumed an average of four random explosions per year in the Texas Triangle, the odds against correctly guessing the day of any explosion to within one day would be 30 to one, while the odds against being correct six times in a row would be nearly a billion to one.
There are all sorts of minor coincidences in the six events that argue against their being merely coincidental. Two of the six occurred a day after the first two scheduled NASA launches since the Columbia disaster of 2003. The Johnson Space Center, Mission Control for NASA, is within the Texas Triangle. Three of the six events have been in Texas City, which was at the time split between the two most dissimilar members of Congress in recent memory, Ron Paul and Tom DeLay. The national media hyped the Al Qaeda fear of the American people before each of the six events, and local media have painstakingly stuck to the official story after each of them.
I believe now, as I believed in 2003, that Houston and its Texas Triangle remain the nation’s most likely target for the next 9/11 attack. A great change has come over me since 2003, though: I no longer believe that we will be attacked by Al Qaeda; rather, I believe that we will be attacked by Al CIA-duh.
My claims are documented, and I invite investigation. In fact, I have constantly appealed to my former colleagues in the media, the military and the police to look into my allegations. Most of them dismiss the very possibility that there could be treasonous terrorism by the Bush administration. Some admit the possibility though, and a few even accept the reality of deliberately staged false flag attacks, but they are frightened of being witnesses to or whistleblowers against so great a criminal activity. As a consequence of my importunity, I can boast of having been threatened by everyone from the FBI to the DIA, having been ignored by both the House of Representatives and the Senate and having been ridiculed by the national and the local media. None of this, however, changes the billion-to-one odds against making six correct predictions out of six attempts.
An Earnest Epilogue and an Early Epitaph
|"If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I’m the dictator."
— George W. Bush, 12/18/00
Since the beginning of my efforts to defend the Texas Triangle, I have been asked repeatedly how it could be true that the Bush administration was attempting to sabotage southeast Texas and I was still alive when I had interfered. I have an answer of sorts to that question now. Soon after the third of my six Texas Triangle missions, I began to experience general body fatigue, followed by muscle spasms, followed by muscular atrophy. Within a year I was diagnosed with ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease, a fatal neuromuscular disorder. The odds against contracting ALS in any given year are 35,000 to one.
I believe two things utterly: I have done my duty, and I have been paid in full for doing it. Now bound to a wheelchair, I can no longer stand up, but I can still stand for something: my oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
As an epilogue to my Texas Triangle analysis, I leave a short appendix of interviews and articles below, for the most part broadcast and published a few days before or after the events they address. I believe that the interested reader will find more than enough material here to reach an informed opinion of my efforts.
